World’s first multi-layered smartphone
To create an alluringly slim and personalized device, Lenovo has introduced a new layered design accented with bold colors. Meticulously designed, countless samples of each hue were printed and matched to ensure a visually harmonious wall of shades.
Utilizing high-tech robotic arms and clean rooms, three coats of paint are applied for each tone, totaling nine coatings per phone. To achieve a smooth finish, expert hand craftsmanship is employed as a final touch to further refine the layers.
Cutting-edge performance and power efficiency
Lenovo is the first global handset manufacturer to ship a smartphone with the latest MediaTek MT6595 True Octa-core™ processor with 4G LTE. Based on a Heterogeneous Multi-Processing platform in big.LITTLE configuration, MediaTek applied its CorePilot technology to the VIBE X2 to unlock the full power of all eight cores. This allows the MT6595 to deliver superior multi-tasking performance and excellent, sustained performance-per-watt, allowing users to enjoy great multimedia features, fast 4G data transmission rates and long battery life on the VIBE X2.
Innovative VIBE Xtension click-on cases
Adding a fourth layer to the VIBE X2’s multi-layered concept is the VIBE Xtension™ click on cases. Lenovo is introducing two VIBE Xtensions™, VIBE X2 Battery and VIBE X2 Speaker which work seamlessly with the VIBE X2 to enhance and personalize consumers’ mobile experience.
At just 5.1mm thin, the VIBE X2 Battery surprises consumers with the ability to extend its life by up to 75 percent. An auxiliary micro-USB port simultaneously charges the case and device.
The unique VIBE X2 Speaker is the first click-on speaker in the market which allows music and movie lovers to immerse themselves with JBL tuned hi-fi sound. Other highlights include a convenient hands-free stand, wireless Bluetooth connectivity and a built-in battery for 5 hours of uninterrupted audio playback.
